On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), HBA Executive Vice President Celeste Rueter (left) and HBCF Contributor Kim Hibbs of Hibbs Homes (right) presented a $4,180 donation to Meghan Mueller, grants manager for Marygrove.

The donation will be used to help with a kitchen renovation in Arbor House. Arbor House is one of six therapeutic foster homes at Marygrove.  Marygrove is dedicated to providing a safe living environment for children and youth while addressing their mental health needs. Marygrove serves approximately 190 children and young adults each day (approximately 1,300 each year) who are struggling with behavioral, emotional or other mental health issues. These issues are often the result of abuse, neglect or other early childhood traumas. The desired outcome for each child is to learn how to manage their mental health condition and develop life skills so they can move to a less restrictive environment.

The HBA is a local trade association of more than 600 member firms representing the residential construction industry. The Home Builders Charitable Foundation, the HBA’s charitable arm, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing assistance to people or organizations with special shelter needs.
